Clicking sound from passenger rear window

So, when I'm moving hte window up or down, I get this sound that almost sounds like the tint or something is crinkling inside the door. I know that can't be it because I've already looked and the tint is still stuck onto the window as far as I can tell (no bubbles or air pockets anywhere.)

Has anyone else had this happen? I don't want to take it into the dealer just to fix that unless its actually a problem. (we all know they always end up making something else worse in the process).

Anyone?

Wow, no-one has had this happening? So I'm the only one? :-( Well, I guess that's good (for everyone else) and bad (for me) haha.

It used to happen on my old Mk6... I never got it looked at though. Window still worked fine for a few years before the car left me.

Both rear windows do it on my Sportwagen. Pretty sure it's the seals not sliding smoothly on the window.

My window only does it on the up motion. The down is never a problem. I want to take the panel apart but don't want to bother if I have top replace a part. Would rather have the dealer do it under warranty.

Had this happen to both rear widows. Regulators replaced in both. They tried lubing then and that solved it for a few weeks, but eventually came back

My GTI started doing this, only in the down direction, only on the driver's rear door, on my THIRD DAY owning the car. Windows were not tinted yet. As a first-time VW owner, I was... not stoked. LOL.

This was also the solution for me. Happened on my 2016 Golf. Only when it was hot out and had been sitting in the sun.

My driver's window has been doing that since day one. Sort of a faint thunk-thunk-thunk sound as the window goes down. No such noise going up. I'm not concerned about it, but if it gets louder I'll probably take it to the dealer.

My passenger door gasket is getting awfully "poppy" in the cold. Only noise I've had so far though.
